While The Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks highlights the 16 cookbooks we deemed the most impressive of 2017 (check ‘em out here!), it’s only 16 books—out of heaps and heaps of cookbooks that came out last year. Yes, "heaps and heaps" is an official count.
2017 was overall a great year for cookbooks: Sales were up 8% over the previous year—just the top ten bestselling cookbooks sold nearly 1.5 million copies—so it's likely that the 16 Piglet contenders are maybe missing a few favorites (we did our best!), which is where your Community Picks come in. We want to know what cookbooks you held close last year, and what we should cook from them.

This year, the Piglet Community Picks will go a little differently: In this Google form, make your really compelling case for which book(s) should’ve been in the Piglet. We’ll tabulate the results and select the top books and share them with you next week!
The Piglet—inspired by The Morning News' Tournament of Books—is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a NCAA-style bracketed tournament. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!
